National Geographic Your Shot

Divine | Photograph by Manish Mamtani (@mmamtani)
“I waited for a whole year for this one weekend in September to have fall foliage, and the Milky Way rising over the Maroon Bells and reflecting in the lake in one frame,” writes Your Shot photographer Manish Mamtani. “After reaching here, I had to wait for another couple of hours in the freezing weather for the moon to set and the Milky Way to align with the Maroon Bells. The green color in the sky is due to air glow. It was so quiet and calm that you could see the reflection of the Milky War in the lake clearly even with the naked eye.”

“Wow. I hope you have framed this photo nice and big for your wall Manis. And then I hope every time you look at it, you pause and have a quiet moment remembering the journey you took to be at this exact spot to capture this image.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)
